hi experts,

I want to make a macro that open another application.

This application is having login module.
So is it possible that I store username and password in code.
And while run the macro it automatically open that application and login into that.

use shell command like

taskID = Shell("excel.exe ""C:\Users\haadi\Downloads\WO sample.xlsm""", 3)
Thanks dear.

But my question is that my application is having login module. When I run application through shell function, it opens login window where I have to type username and password.

And my query is that whether I can store username and password in my code so that it will give username and password automatically and login to application?

depends on how application is written. You can pass the parameters to the application as you launch it
